Let me know what’s in the books for this summer and we’ll talk! 👇🏻
My librarian and I started talking about a school wide GooseChase to promote the library during National Library week next week. But the more we talked about it the more we’re probably not going to do it with our high schoolers. Some of the holdups/concerns:is there a way to prevent inappropriate names? is there a better way to try to advertise without the game code being put around the community? can you review submissions before they’re posted to the feed?

Did our latest email newsletter fly into your inbox? The Chase is two delightful minutes in your inbox that capture the thrill of creating incredible interactive experiences for your community. 📚 This month we talked all things Experience Template Library, chock-full of 250+ ready-to-use templates that are ready to run, you can easily search for topics or holidays, use them for inspiration, or customize each Mission for your community. 📼 If you started your first job somewhere between the 80s and ‘00s, we can bet a corporate training video was part of the agenda. We compiled 9 of the best retro training videos for your viewing pleasure!🤫 “Quiet hiring” is often uttered in the same breath as other recent-ish trends like “quiet firing” and “quiet quitting.” The good news is this particular brand of quiet offers something far more promising: the prospect of incorporating new skill sets into your workplace simply by giving existing employees new responsibilities. So what’s the deal wit
I'm currently looking if Goosechase will fit my intended purpose. I'd like to make a city tour in a certain order. I can't find an option to unhide GPS missions based on earlier completed missions. Is this not possible? For my purpose I need a mix of (hidden) GPS missions and open choosable other missions.
Hi All, I am running a goosechase at a conference that I am leading as part of my doctoral capstone project. There is not a lot of free time but I would like to do things that are fun but also aligned with the event itself. I am thinking of tweeting or posting things.Intorducing yourself to strangersFind a faculty member for a picture? (They may hate me for that) And other ideas? Here is our schedulehttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1j8DCgPknyvlwxj6PLiXUv1C35RCkMnEZVGAwT-mP7mY/edit
I think a lot of new creators would say that the hardest part of building out your first Goosechase experience is… actually building out the experience. And not to take anything away from those struggles, but thankfully that learning curve isn’t too big AND once you’ve got it figured out… you’re flying!The real struggle is… once you have your masterpiece built, what then? What’s the point of having this great experience if no one knows about it?So my question is… What are your top 3 ways to motivate people to participate in your Experiences? This can be from a promotion of your experience, communication, education, etc.
Hello! I am new to Goosechase. I have done some searching on the site but have not found what I am looking for. I am looking for a mission/scavenger hunt for High School aged youth that is Christian based, but not bible centered (i.e. related to finding bible verses). We are having our first offsite retreat since COVID (yay!) and would like to try this outdoors with them using their phones. Any help or direction would be appreciated!
I have an event on horizon and would like to merge Goosechase and Art. The obvious connection would be to find pieces of art in the area and have missions centered on those pieces or have a self guided tour of a museum. I am looking for some other creative ideas…. maybe photography based, art element based, other?I would love to hear what the flock has to say! Any ideas or inspiration you may have for me is very welcome!
Just for a little fun, here’s a game we play on slack at Goosechase HQ each week and the responses have been nothing less than hilarious 🤣. It’s called This Or That, you’re given a scenario and two choices, and you simply need to pick one or the other. That’s it! Pick your own level of humiliation (and remember you have to choose only ONE):Here's the situation, you got caught red-handed doing something bad, and the judge (me), finds you GUILTY, but gives you a choice in your punishment.. 😅. You either MUST sing Karaoke 🎵 EVERY TIME you're in public OR be forced to wear a clown suit EVERYWHERE 🤡 Please only choose the THIS... or the THAT. There are not other options, there are no grey areas up for discussion. it is THIS or THAT.... That's it, that's all
I think that it would be great to receive, rather than just email that there is a new post, some sort of highlight on the main page that new conversations/comments are awaiting me so that I can click there and get to the conversations.I often feel a little overwhelmed because I am looking for that last place a comment was made. Anyone else have that issue?
When January arrives, thoughts turn to spring and summer race season. This weekend I was in full training -mode with a 24 mile bike (on the trainer because it is well below zero) and a mile swim on Saturday, then a run on Sunday.Trying to squeeze in exercise and healthy choices can be hard when you are busy taking care of work, family and the nest!I have enlisted the fun competition of Goosechase to inspire and motivate conference participants to making healthy choices… https://gsch.se/game/1ae6a851169e4529a216a0058a10972a/copy/Any other ideas from the flock for healthy eggs of inspiration?
Vendors sponsor a conference for exposure. I have enlisted Goosechase to get attendees to flock to vendor booths and interact with the vendors that are helping make our conference a success. It is so much fun to see the vendors and participants interact to complete missions. We also got creative in our mission titles and tasks so that the vendor and/or company name was included. And, the winner got the Vendor Social grand prize (donated by the vendors). Past prizes have included drones, Alexa, Swivl, and a Chromebook! Not bad for a bunch of fun!

I have used GooseChase for several library programs, and each time I had grownups agree to what is, essentially, a media release, but I’m curious if anyone has developed another method of protecting the privacy of minors or getting parental approval for using images.
Every year I get the privilege of working with preservice teachers to share great ways to integrate technology and literacy. There are so many… one of my favorites. Here is an example of a Literacy Goose Chase I created for New Teachers ready to Hatch!https://gsch.se/game/7ebcffe0d52f424f871198529bf8f024/copy/
We were trying to think of a way to provide some onboarding/training for our new state officers for Educators Rising. I had the idea to use Goosechase to “gamify” the training and provide the training as “missions” to complete. The modules contained items such as questions relating to leadership and membership constitution documents and included questions to anticipate hypothetical situations encountered as officers. The students liked a refreshing and mobile “game” that allowed them to be interactive in their learning and responses!
